I currently teach on the Access to HE course for Norfolk County Council's Adult Education (I've also taught for the Continuing Education dept at UEA) and teach across the region, so I have worked with a range of students from teenagers to much more mature learners (I've had 2 students in their 80's). I also co-ordinated Summer Schools for 7 years so have worked with year 10 and year 11 students (ages 14-16)

I'm very happy with Andrea's writing tuition so far, for me especially her feedback has helped me immensely to realise my strengths and weaknesses and thus correct them and improve my writing
